The Coral Geographer is a 120-guest Australian expedition cruising in Australia, Indonesia, Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean. Built with state-of-the-art expedition features and crafted with convenience in mind, she offers a wine cellar, showcase galley serving fine cuisine, private balconies with most guest cabins, six Zodiacs and two Xplorer tenders. In March 2021, Coral Geographer joined her sister ship, Coral Adventurer, as one of the newest small ships cruising Australia and beyond. Due to demand, Coral Geographer features four additional 600-square-foot suites, for a total of six Bridge Deck Suites, plus many well-stocked bars and an elevator that accesses every deck.

This new Australia ship delivers one of the most modern expedition platforms to actively adventure along the rugged and remote coastlines of Australia, Indonesia, Southeast Asia and their neighboring islands.

Coral Geographer Design

Coral Geographer’s cultural and laid back common areas feature a motif derived from the Australian lifestyle. Her design focuses on fostering community, offering comfort and showcasing the vistas that she sails through. A shallow draft and state-of-the-art navigation and propulsion systems enable access to places that large cruise ships often cannot reach, and her modern stabilizers ensure a smooth ride. The elevator connects every deck, enabling all guests to easily move about the ship.

Common Areas Aboard Coral Geographer

Coral Geographer’s over 10,500 square feet of open deck space, including a wraparound Promenade Deck with panoramic views, encourages passengers to soak in the wild nature and inspiring vistas that the ship cruises through. The navigator observation lounge in the Bridge invites guests to interact with the captain and comfortably learn about the ship’s operations and navigation. The lecture lounge on the Bridge Deck offers a library with reference materials that educate on the places and nature that Coral Discoverer welcomes her passengers to. The library also features audio-visual tools for daily expedition briefings and scheduled expert lectures. Also on the Bridge Deck, the multipurpose Expedition Room is a space ready to host special gatherings such as marine research missions. 

Coral Geographer’s gym is equipped with elliptical trainers and treadmills for guests with fitness routines. Two public restrooms offer respite without needing to return to your cabin. WiFi is available in all guest areas (added cost), ensuring connectivity for those who want it. The reception desk provides information and the gift shop offers gifts and travel essentials that may not have made it into your suitcase.

Dining Aboard Coral Geographer

Coral Geographer features a special focus on wine paired with crisp, mouthwatering, small-scale cuisine. Her modern showcase galley, beside the dining room at the rear of the Promenade Deck, invites guests to observe the magic in the making of refined modern dishes featuring locally sourced produce. Special diets may be accommodated with advance notice. Meals are served in one seating, at both the long communal “wine” table (finished with Australian stone) in the center of the room, as well as smaller circular tables throughout the dining room. This set up both fosters community among guests as well as provides opportunities for small groups to enjoy meals together. 

Breakfast and lunch are served buffet style, while dinner is a plated, multi-course affair. Wine enthusiasts will appreciate Coral Geographer’s discerning wine menu that reflects the depth and variety of Australian wine, as well as the curated wine cellar featuring modestly priced boutique wines for daily drinking and exceptional vintage Australian reds. Showcase wines, artisanal Australian and New Zealand spirits, selected beers, juices and soft drinks are an order away among Coral Geographer’s selection of indoor and outdoor bars, including the Explorer bar on the sundeck, an opportune place to sip sunset drinks with panoramic views. Coffee and a selection of teas are also available around the clock.

Activities Aboard Coral Geographer

Passengers intrigued by Coral Geographer’s mechanical technology are welcome to take an engine room tour. Guests inspired by the authentic cuisine served on board are invited to accompany a chef for a market tour. For the adventurers aboard, two trademark Xplorer tenders seat all passengers at once in full seats with a covered overhead area and a swing-arm, forward-facing ramp that creates a walkway directly to the shore. These tenders are cradled on the aft of the Explorer Deck, from where guests can easily embark and disembark right from the ship. The Xplorers are then hydraulically lowered and raised between the Explorer Deck and the ocean. Coral Geographer’s six Zodiacs are raised and lowered from the Bridge Deck, enabling more rugged exploration. On select departures, kayaks and/or a glass-bottom boat are also on board.
